    Habits in Everyday Life

    by
    Wendy Wood from USC joined LILA to share the research she does on habits -- what they are, how they can be aligned/misaligned with intentions, and how habits often override intentions (for better of worse). She set the table by suggested that habits are part our multiple selves, specifically part of our automatic self.That is the self that is guided by cation cues (like seeing a pot of coffee). This self is less conscious, not easily verbalize what we are doing, and changes slowly with experience. The automatic or "habitual self" is different from the "intentional self", which is guided by attitudes, goals, values. This self is more conscious, can verbalize, and can change quickly with decisions.

    Designing for Total Engagement

    by
    Byron Reeves commented that rather than learning for desired performances, organizations are refocusing on when desired performances are happening (executing successful missions, effective problem solving, etc,) what learning is happening in action.
